 Sir Ricky's Inspirational Poetry Corner

Fence Building

Dishonest people gossip to destroy,
Reputations of a girl or a boy;
So they would rather be making up lies,
Because they are envious and despise.

It is stupid with saying such bad things
Not thinking of all the heartaches it brings;
Plus a possibility to bounce back,
With supportive knowledge that you may lack.

Gossipers are mainly troublemakers,
That are just a bunch of sneaky fakers;
And for the most part usually uncouth,
Because knowing not what really is truth.

They are greedy always looking for gold,
By stretching the truth of what they are told;
Hope to stir up trouble for someone good,
That they get shot down wherever they stood.

But good people having their own good sense,
Able to be protected by a fence;
That is erected by God with His arm,
That will be keeping you from any harm.
